If you are within earshot of Freeform KDVS 90.3 FM, get yourselves to these fantastic rock & roll shows. (The date for this one on the right is Wednesday, July 28.) No Stimulus on Sunday....Brandon can't get outta work. So, I'll be invoking Outer Zoning Committee, a krauty party band with dual basses surrounding me with G. Greeners and a Ganglian and a Stimulus dude. OZC big band!

So, I'm late to the Ceramic Hobs, but thanks to SS Records head honcho Scott Soriano, I was tipped off to a supply of unplayed Hobs material including their first two full-length CDs, two 7"es, a flexi, and a cassette. You can tap the source, too, by eBay-searching the band name. For fans of early Fall, Melchior and Wallers at their most experimental, Gods Gift, The Pheromoans, and whacked tape collage, the Ceramic Hobs are a must! Especially if you enjoy giant blocks of small-point text like I do!

I'd heard of this band before, but never heard 'em until Scott spun me the B-side of the Shaolin Master 7" a few weeks ago. I knew I must have anything available, and you livelong fans and noobs will hafta fight me for the rest of their sizable discography.

Here's a couple interviews with the band...

New best one-note bassline (sorry, Chosen Few!)...
